Whistlers Cafe Bar and Restaurant
Old favourites with a new twist
Jane and Richard Main are passionate about food and entertaining, which has inspired them to create a relaxed, high-quality restaurant offering a sensational menu of new ideas and uniquely updated favourites.
Customer satisfaction is highest priority at this family-run venue, and the Whistlers menu covers breakfast, lunch and dinner with all points in between – snacks, hot drinks and cakes to fill in the day’s empty spots. Wines, beers, ciders, cocktails and a range of fresh fruit smoothies compliment the menu.
If you’re after something a little different, why not try duck, chicken liver and cognac parfait for starter? Hereford steak, roasted shallot and Hooky ale pie for main? Fig and stilton pizza for an evening treat? Or Belgian chocolate tart with morello cherry ice-cream.

Bang in the middle of Chipping Norton, Bitter and Twisted is a contemporary, upbeat restaurant-bar with a warm and buzzing welcome ready for any time of day.
Situated in a lovely old Cotswold building in the town square, Bitter and Twisted offers an inviting garden patio along with its modern restaurant and extensive menu. It’s a ‘happening’ place with a young heart and sophisticated sense of style.
